Over night, the Atlantic Ocean has retreated from the coast of Florida, leaving behind a wasteland. Cruise liners are rusting in the sand off Miami, hotels stand empty, the harbour is deserted and even the glamorous advertising industry, once broadcasting ceaselessly, has shut down completely. A city is searching for an anchor in a reeling reality. Inmidst all this, we encounter a struggling working-class family, an overly ambitious indie game programmer, a young sociologist and an e-sports team from Wuppertal. Funny and sad, gloomy and labyrinthine: “Miami Punk” is a novel about the meaning of work, about authority and power and about lonely nights in front of the computer screen.
